Global Organic Textile Standard Logo

United Textile Group is GOTS certified.

In 2019 our factory in Turkey and our office in Denmark were all certified with GOTS, and in 2020 our office in Istanbul was the same. This means we can produce and deliver GOTS-certified garments to all our customers. There is a clear consensus that GOTS is a world-leading labeling scheme, which is issued only when strict sustainability, ecology, and social responsibility requirements have been met. 

The GOTS certification requires that the textile contains at least 95 percent certified organic fibers and that accessories live up to strict criteria. Throughout the manufacturing process, products and auxiliaries must not contain harmful additives such as pesticides, heavy metal pollutants, or other chemicals that are considered dangerous or harmful.

As a GOTS supplier, UTG commits to a strict environmental policy aimed at minimizing emissions, energy and water consumption. GOTS ensures that employees are treated responsibly:

  • At the factories, conditions must comply with conditions that ensure the health and safety of everyone.
  • There is a limit on working hours and guaranteed holidays.
  • Health assurances that provide access to doctors and important medicine must also be included in the salary.
  • Zero child labor!

We meet both OCS ecology standards. Independent third parties are in charge of controlling, among other things, the content of our textiles from the origin of raw materials to our finished products. In addition, OCS stands for transparency and continuous, comprehensive inspection visits. 

  • OCS 100 = 95% or above organic content and max 5% other fibers
  • OCS blended = 5% or up to 95% organic content

RCS 100 and RCS Blended.

Recycled Claim Standard. The RCS is used as a chain of custody standard to track recycled raw materials through the supply chain.  The standard was developed through work done by the Materials Traceability Working Group, part of OIA’s Sustainability Working Group. The RCS uses the chain of custody requirements of the Content Claim Standard.

  • RCS 100 = 95% or above of Recycle fibers. 
  • RCS Blended = less than 95% but more than 5 % recycle fibers.
